Taiwan and St Kitts and Nevis are planning to establish a solar farm in the twin-island federation, Taiwanese Ambassador to St Kitts and Nevis Miguel Tsao announced this week.

Tsao was speaking at the installation of a new phase of solar lights along St Kitts’ main road from Sandy Point to St Paul’s.

“During the past year, we have successfully placed solar panels on the roof of Government Headquarters and set smart LED lights on the Kim Collins Highway and Frigate Bay Road,” he said in a release. “Both ventures are significant and important. Also, these projects were initiated with our joint efforts to tap into the unlimited clean energy source.”

Tsao said the new lights clearly demonstrated “the strong determination and will of the Government of St. Kitts and Nevis and the seamless coordination of my Embassy.”

“I do believe with our concerted efforts we can reach our common goals in promoting Renewable Energy,” he said.
